Day Two | September 22, 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. CT: Elder Financial Exploitation
Since the onset of the pandemic 18 months ago, isolation of individuals from family and friends has led to an increase in fraud targeting the elderly population. In this roundtable forum, hear from representatives from the Department of Justice focused on elder fraud cases and what they have seen trending over the course of the pandemic with a focus on the fraud trends in Minnesota. Ranging from traditional romance scams to malware and ransomware to home repair fraud, the elderly population has been targeted at a far greater level than ever before. Have a chance to interact and discuss these fraud typologies and learn what to look for in transactional activity and who to contact and when should you detect elder fraud activity.
- Jacqueline Blaesi-Freed, Assistant Director, Consumer Protection Branch, U.S. Department of Justice
